Grandma used to say it wasn't safe to put anything tender out until after Memorial Day. I guess that is good advice for our part of Ohio. We had a hard frost last night, and one is predicted tonight. I didn't have anything to worry about...I thought. But check out the before and after. OMG. I'm sure it hasn't helped them to be all they can be. I had added extra straw last week, but the poor babies stuck their heads out again. Since they had been growing through all this weather I thought they would be fine. Wrong.
